Video interview with Ella Hunt (“Dickinson”)

“It really makes me smile to feel like we’ve helped bring queer stories to the forefront,” Ella Hunt says of what period comedy/drama “Dickinson” means to her. “It’s not just that the show has a queer romance at its heart, it’s that the show unfolds all of this delicious queer history,” she says, adding or our recent online chat that “I feel so proud to be part of a show that shows those spaces and uncovers that history because it’s not that people haven’t lived queer lives, it’s just that we haven’t told our story.

In Oscar-nominated ‘Dickinson’ Hailee Steinfeld stars as poet Emily Dickinson, reimagining the life and times of the literary icon as she rebels against the gender norms of 19th century America. Created by Alena Smith, the series is intentionally anachronistic in its style, language, tone, and music, as it captures the spirit of its rebellious poetry for contemporary audiences. Hunt plays Sue Gilbert, Emily’s lover and best friend, who is married to Emily’s brother, Austin (Adrian Blake Enscoe). Apple TV Plus Era Comedy/Drama Co-Stars Emmy Nominated Jane Krakowski, Anna Baryshnikov, Toby Hus and rapper Wiz Khalifa like “Death,” with its third and final season set during the Civil War, as Emily comes into her own as an artist. Picking up where the second season left off, the series also deepens Emily’s relationship with Sue as the pair come to terms with feelings for each other.

The deep bond between Emily and Sue is captured mid-season when after Sue is exhausted and broken as a new mother, Emily kneels before her and professes her love for her, stating “I can’t live without you, I can’ I can’t breathe without you, and I can’t write without you. Hunt vividly remembers that day on set, due to the way it illustrated not only the love between these two characters, but the bond she shares with leading lady Steinfeld.” While Hailee and I have built such a deep, beautiful relationship, it’s meant more and more to us and our friendship to explore that beautiful, ever-changing dynamic between them. “, she shares.

“For me, playing Sue, we really see a side of her that we’ve never seen before. In the first two seasons, she tries her best to suppress all those feelings. Really no feelings. This season, all the feelings go through her – the good, the bad and the messy – and I love that about this season. So the joy for me to play her with Hailee is that Hailee is such an amazing actress and that she gives as much as Emily. She’s so passionate about this relationship between the two of them that just reacting to Hailee and watching her say those lines when Emily meant so much to me as Ella and as Sue , that it doesn’t even feel like acting. I literally look at her and cry.
